Bathroom Cabinets - Really a Big Dilemma?

Bathroom cabinets were only really used for storage, mounted on the wall in earlier days. Now they are considered as the important styling component in our bathroom. Bathroom sinks are another vanity which adds style to your bathrooms. Bathroom sinks have come along way from the ordinary hollowed out stone, used in earlier days. Now bathroom sinks are available in different styles, shape and colour. The material used for making sinks is of wide variety now. Stone sinks, stainless steel sinks, porcelain, and fiberglass are some of them. Before buying your sink, one has to consider the position and the usage of the sinks. Depending upon what the sink will have to endure and whether it will come in regular contact with water, the choice of the material can be decided.

Stone sinks and stainless steel can with stand any condition, however, porcelain is highly susceptible to damage; it gets scratched or chipped very easily. But the advantage of porcelain is that they can be repaired and cleaned without too much of a problem. Porcelain sinks are available in a wide range of colours, to match the cabinets and other décor in your bathroom. Stone bathroom sinks also come in different colours but they get stained easily, as the stones are highly porous. The cheaper type of bathroom sinks are the fiber glass sinks which are less feasible, as they turn dull due to regular contact with water. It is better to select bathroom sinks, which include faucets and drain assembly which makes the installation more easy and perfect.

Bathroom cabinets are an essential component of any bathroom. Now a day stylish and more elegant looking cabinets are available. There are sleek varieties to save space, antique -look cabinets which provide a traditional look to your bathrooms, or custom made types to suite any of your specific needs. Bathroom cabinets are available in the traditional American style with frames attached to them, to cover the row edges of the cabinet. The frame less or the European style bathroom cabinets have their row edges covered by simple trim strips. The bathroom cabinets can be tall and large and provides storage area to tuck away things, so the bathroom remains clutter free.

The least expensive type of bathroom cabinets are the stock type, they are mass produced and hence cheaper than other types. But they are available in only a few ranges of size and style. Modular bathroom cabinets are the comparatively new type of bathroom cabinets. They are also mass - produced. Modular bathroom cabinets are more popular as they provide flexibility in the design. The most expensive of all types are the custom made bathroom cabinets. They are not mass-produced, and they are usually built by the cabinet shops according to the need of the customer. Bathroom cabinet made of different wood is also available. You can have cabinets made of walnut, cherry, oak or maple, finished with high -gloss lacquer to give the natural wood finish.

Wall mounted sinks and cabinets take up less space, as they do not have contact with the floor you can utilise that space for putting other objects like a small table or chair or a built on rubbish bin.  Sinks which are mounted on top of counters or cabinets are more stable and sturdy than the wall mounted bathroom cabinets or the free standing ones.
